You have to love the meltdown going on in the Party of Greed these days. The N&O's Under the Dome brings us the latest installment, courtesy of theocrat Coy Privette.
Former state Rep. Coy Privette, a veteran of GOP politics, started a Web site Thursday, questioning the conservative credentials of Salisbury lawyer Bill Graham, a likely candidate for governor in 2008. Privette said he has known Graham for 30 years and never viewed him as a conservative.
"I've been watching all these TV ads," Privette said. "Bill Graham is trying to sell himself as a conservative. To Republicans in North Carolina living up here in this neck of the woods, I know he is not a conservative."
Stopbillgraham.com criticizes Graham for being a trial lawyer, for making contributions to Democratic judges and for giving a donation to Mike Easley when he was attorney general in 1999.
This is really wonderful. Coy Boy is pushing Billy Bob to get in line with the government-haters. Which leaves the Fred "the Asphalt King" Smith free to push for his own version of smaller government while he sucks up more state contracts for his paving bidness. What fun!
